] I agree with you about the casting. KW just is Marianne, there is no question. Kinda like Megan Follows is the only person who could ever play Anne Shirley. IMHO of course
] I wasn't specifically thinking of Kate, but then again I love her performance in this film particularly, so she was a partial motivator for my statement. And I agree about Anne, Follows is the ony person I can dream of imagining as Anne. Also, although I'm not implying you were intending to parallel the 2 characters(;-) does that make for less or more confusion), they are sort of similar with their romantic effusing and enthusing, and (s0metimes ) allowing the imaginary to obscure the real.
I thought I'd venture beyond the P&P board for the first time.
I agree that the characters are very similar in some ways, I think that it is offset by the motivation for their imagining. Anne Shirley used her imagination to obscure her unhappy reality in the early years of her life, and then got so good at it, that she just kept doing it even though the need was gone. Anne's imagining focuses on making something beautiful out of the ugly or bad, and seems a lot more elaborate too.
Marianne seems to be a romantic just for the sake of it, and IMHO seems to focus on the tragedy aspect of romantic thought.
